NFL Lockout 2011: Browns Players Visit To Facility Short Lived

As expected, several Cleveland Browns players showed up at the team’s headquarters this morning though their stay was a short one. Josh Cribbs and Ben Watson were among the players that arrived this morning. They left shortly thereafter, having received a letter from the team suggesting they shouldn’t work out.

That said, the players were treated kindly according to Mary Kay Cabot. The same story is being repeated all over the National Football League Tuesday morning as players react to Federal Judge Susan Nelson’s ruling that the NFL-imposed lockout was illegal. She will hear arguments tomorrow regarding a stay in her decision while the NFL appeals.

Most think she will not grant the stay, leading to chaos until the appeal is hear. Can teams sign free agents? Can players be traded? What will happen on Thursday night in the draft? All of these questions would need answers, and there is a little over 48 hours left to answer them.
